Yesterday, The Overseer dropped a lyric video for their song, “Scarlet Wool.” The track comes from their upcoming full-length release due to hit stores in March. In a recent interview with HM, guitartist Darren King spoke about the band’s influences on the upcoming record.
We all like bands that are constantly growing; not necessarily changing, but their music is always evolving. Bands like Thrice, for instance. Every record that they did was something different. You never heard the same thing twice, which is awesome. Every record got better in my opinion. We all looked up to them a lot.
We all have gotten into a lot of music that’s not really heavy, just because we’re around it all the time. We tour with heavy bands — we hear it every night — so the last thing you want to hear whenever you’re driving in the van on tour is heavy music.
Look for The Overseer in the March issue of HM.
